Re: Sunflower seeds

I save sunflower seeds for bonding treats or training treats. It's Luna's most favorite but yea, they're high in fat but not very good for them. I feed her maybe about 3 shelled sunflower seeds a day, I just break them into halves or thirds.


There's a few alternatives if you want to try them. Almond slices are much lower in fat and tend to usually be a hit. If you're that concerned, you could soak or sprout the sunflower seeds so the fats turn into healthier nutrients. Although your baby might not like them as much.
